Managing Your Toddlers TANTRUMS!

Tantrums are normal for toddlers, even legendary. Toddlers feel so passionately about everything, and they simply don’t have enough frontal cortex capacity yet to control themselves when they’re upset.
That said, you’ll be glad to know that many tantrums are avoidable. Since many tantrums are an result of feeling powerless, toddlers who feel they have some control over their lives have many fewer tantrums.

Potato, Zucchini and Thyme Purée: 6 Months+

First off, make sure you choose a potato and zucchini with no blemishes and give them a good wash.
Peel them and chop them into small pieces (roughly 2cm x 2cm).
Steam or boil the potatoes until fully cooked – a fork should be able to pierce through it with no effort.

Baby food: shop-bought vs. home-made, which wins?

The questions start clouding your mind: When do I start? How much do I give? What do I give? All quick to be answered with a little bit of research (que the frantic phone call to your mom) but the one question most parents really struggle with these days is: shop-bought or home-made?

Easy Potty Training for Toddlers

Fortunately, there is never a reason to fight with your child about this. Moving from diapers to being self-sufficiently able to use the toilet is a natural process. Humans have been doing it for a long time. They all get out of diapers sooner or later.

Potato, carrot and cinnamon purée 6 Months+

First off, make sure you choose a potato and carrot with no blemishes and give them a good wash.
Peel them and chop them into small pieces (roughly 2cm x 2cm).
Steam or boil until fully cooked – a fork should be able to pierce through it with no effort.

Our Review on the Jeep Jogging Stroller

Whenever I can find a product that takes me through multiple stages of baby and toddlerhood, I’m ready to throw a dang party. Flowy infant dress that can be used as a toddler top when paired with leggings? Yes, please! Bottles that can be transformed into training cups by adding a handle? Gimme!

Toddlers: Embracing the Terrific Twos

Most children become harder to manage at around fourteen months. That’s because they make a huge developmental leap at this point. They’re not so easily distracted. They realize they have some influence in the world, but not a lot of power, and they start experimenting to see how they can get their needs met and their desires fulfilled.

The big 5 of baby purée – best foods to start baby on

I remember feeling particularly excited the day I started my daughter on solids. I had put a huge amount of pressure on myself (and her) as food has always been such a big part of my life, I just could not wait to see the priceless look on her face as she has her first taste of it. I was also nervous because the way I saw it, I had this blank canvas in front of me and whatever I was going to feed her these next few years would have an effect on her lifestyle, well, basically forever.

My top 10 not-so-traditional baby food combo’s

I mentioned in one of my previous blogs that I saw my daughter’s palette as a blank canvas. This might sound strange to some and yes, we are born with some genetic inclinations to certain tastes but for the most part, our palettes are blank – ready to be introduced to new flavour combinations and textures.

Potato, Pea and Mint Purée: 6 Months+

Just before the potatoes are done, chuck the peas in. They only need a minute or two to cook (3 minutes or so if you used frozen).
Blend the potatoes, peas and mint together until smooth, you will most likely need to add some water to loosen t up or for extra creaminess you can use breastmilk/formula.

Teach Your Toddler to Put Himself to Sleep

Toddlers need adequate sleep to rise to the developmental challenges that fill their lives, from controlling their temper on the playground to staying on top of their own bodily functions. Even the stress of saying goodbye to Mom and Dad when the babysitter comes can be handled more resourcefully by a rested toddler than a tired one. Your toddler doesn’t know it, but he needs his sleep.

Potatoes: Are they Friend or Foe?

Potatoes have gotten such a bad rep over the last few years because they contain high glycemic-index carbohydrates but this doesn’t mean they are unhealthy. Did you know that a medium sized potato contains more potassium than a banana? They are also a really good source of vitamin B6 and vitamin C.
